Brewers hit 3 HRs, send Astros to 9th loss in row

Posted:

 

  HOUSTON (AP) -- Norichika Aoki and Ryan Braun hit consecutive homers in the first inning and Rickie Weeks later hit a two-run shot, leading Yovani Gallardo and the Milwaukee Brewers over the slumping Houston Astros 7-1 on Friday night.

   The Astros lost their season-worst ninth game in a row.

   Gallardo (7-6) beat Houston for the eighth straight start, allowing one run and four hits in six innings.

   The Astros, who have baseball's worst road record at 9-32, were eager to get home after a 0-7 trip. But it was more of the same for them at Minute Maid Park.
